As most of you already know, I have written and illustrated a book called “How Heather got her HAT’ness back” – which is currently in the final-final stages of production – and should (if all goes according to plan) be printed by the end of August.
As I’ve gone through the motions of crowdfunding… and promoting… and chatting about the book, I have connected with a lot of people – and a couple of you have asked me a couple of questions.
And a couple of those questions have been asked again and again, like these:
- “HOW did you get your HAT’ness back and find yourself again?”
- “HOW did you stop shaming your body?”
- “HOW did you lose all that weight?”
- “HOW did you escape the rat-race?”
- “HOW do you educate your kids differently?”
- “HOW did you get out of debt?”
And I have a lot to say about those things (and many other things). A LOT!
So – being the perfectionist, all-or-nothing person that I am… I collected a mountain of resources to share with you: stories, tips, advice, inspiring books, articles, blogs, links & quotes… strategies that had helped me… pondertunities… creative exercises… photos, art, ideas… (and a gazillion other things)…
And I began to compile colourful resource-zines and creative-courses that I wanted to share with you…
… because it wasn’t all PERFECT… and because I haven’t really had the time to create a PERFECT thing to share with you guys… I didn’t share ANY of it – at all (did I mention that I have a problem with the All-or-Nothing mentality…?)
And so… all that content… all those stories… all that (potentially helpful) information… has been stacked in a giant filing cabinet – and NOT shared (even though it could prove really helpful to some folk)… because… (sigh)… I haven’t deemed it to be “ready” (read: perfect enough) to share with you.
So… today – I say: No more!
Starting from today – I am going to share a series of pretty intense blog posts that will each contain the following:
- My story and experience (surrounding a specific topic or issue)
- Photos & Art
- Creative exercises & ideas
- Pondertunities (questions & thoughts for YOU to ponder too)
- Tips, links & resources to the stuff that helped ME.
The posts won’t be “perfect”.
But – that’s probably a good thing.
I’m kinda done with trying to be perfect anyway….
PS: Feedback appreciated! And especially if you have any particular questions or topics you’d like me to address!
